We all want to be happy. But we sometimes think of happiness as a thing that happens to us — something we have no control over. It's easy to link the idea of happiness with the situation we're in.

This study aims to construct a model of meaningful leadership, based on the values, aspirations, and attitudes of a leader and how these qualities help them develop positive organizational cultures. The research, based on constructivist grounded theory design, utilized semi-structured interview technique with 15 teachers, examining their perceptions of meaningfulness and leadership. These interviews revealed ten core dimensions of meaningful leadership: An ultimate purpose in life, sharing meaning, understanding, linking the past, present, and future, wisdom, peacefulness, a sense of ethics, serving others, inner motivation, and fostering unity. These dimensions can be considered essential when identifying meaningful leaders. This proposed model of leadership, with a focus on meaningfulness, can play a pivotal role in an organization by contributing to self-realization of members and ensuring the unity of purpose.

Experiencing meaning in life and practicing mindfulness in daily life are desirable features of a healthy and satisfactory life. However, the relationships among meaningfulness, mindfulness, psychological well-being and mental health outcomes remains elusive. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between mindfulness and meaning in life and to analyse how these variables are connected with life satisfaction, happiness, mental health and affect scores, regarded as outcome variables, after controlling for the effects of socio-demographic variables and religious attitudes. Mindfulness and meaningfulness were significantly associated with one another. A structural equation model revealed that compared to mindfulness, meaningfulness was more strongly associated with positive well-being i. Mindfulness, however, had a stronger relationship with negative well-being i. Moreover, meaningfulness was found to mediate the relationship between mindfulness and both positive and negative well-being.
The term happiness is used in the context of mental or emotional states, including positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Since the s, happiness research has been conducted in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including gerontology , social psychology and positive psychology , clinical and medical research and happiness economics. The word is mostly used in relation to two factors: . Some usages can include both of these factors. Subjective well-being swb  includes measures of current experience emotions, moods, and feelings and of life satisfaction. Xavier Landes  has proposed that happiness include measures of subjective wellbeing, mood and eudaimonia.
Do you, like many people, have a mental list of things you think you need in order to be truly happy? There are many externals our society teaches us to chase: success, wealth, fame, power, good looks, romantic love. But are they really the keys to happiness? The research says no, at least when it comes to long-term happiness. Human beings are quick to adapt to new circumstances—a quality that has helped us survive and thrive. But it also means that the positive things that initially make us happier soon become our new normal and we return to our old happiness baseline.

Happiness was largely present oriented, whereas meaningfulness involves integrating past, present, and future. For example, thinking about future and past was associated with high meaningfulness but low happiness.
Is there more to life than being happy? But what I discovered there changed my life. There appears to be an income threshold where making more than this amount contributes very little to being happier.
Is it a life filled with happiness or a life filled with purpose and meaning?
The pursuit of happiness and meaning are two of our most central motivations in life. A wealth of research in positive psychology suggests that happiness and meaning are, in fact, essential elements of well-being. Happiness and meaning are strongly correlated with each other , and often feed off each other. The more meaning we find in life, the more happy we typically feel, and the more happy we feel, the more we often feel encouraged to pursue even greater meaning and purpose. An increasing body of research suggests that that there can be substantial trade-offs between seeking happiness and seeking meaning in life. It seems that raising children can decrease happiness but increase meaning. In recent years, a number of studies have further supported the differences between happiness and meaning.
- Нашим главным стражем была система Сквозь строй, а Стратмор вышвырнул ее в мусорную корзину. - Это объявление войны, - прошептал Фонтейн срывающимся голосом. Джабба покачал головой: - Лично я сомневаюсь, что Танкадо собирался зайти так. Я думаю, он собирался оставаться поблизости и вовремя все это остановить. Глядя на экран, Фонтейн увидел, как полностью исчезла первая из пяти защитных стен. - Бастион рухнул! - крикнул техник, сидевший в задней части комнаты. - Обнажился второй щит.
Сьюзан посмотрела на него и едва не рассмеялась. Невозможно. Что это должно означать. Такого понятия, как шифр, не поддающийся взлому, не существует: на некоторые из них требуется больше времени, но любой шифр можно вскрыть. Есть математическая гарантия, что рано или поздно ТРАНСТЕКСТ отыщет нужный пароль. - Простите.
Being happy and finding life meaningful overlap, but there are important differences. A large survey revealed multiple differing predictors of happiness.
Фонтейн внимательно изучал ВР, глаза его горели. Бринкерхофф слабо вскрикнул: - Этот червь откроет наш банк данных всему миру. - Для Танкадо это детская забава, - бросил Джабба. - Нашим главным стражем была система Сквозь строй, а Стратмор вышвырнул ее в мусорную корзину. - Это объявление войны, - прошептал Фонтейн срывающимся голосом.
